Contracting through Wells Fargo.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Portland, OR

I worked at Wells Fargo as a contractor for less than a year

ProsThe place was very orderly and there was a good vibe from the people who worked there.

ConsThe contracts are somewhat short, but do get renewed as needed. Some politics on the project made moving forward a little strange.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

it is a great place to work if they paid enought to live

Home Loan Consultant (Current Employee)
Portland, OR

I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for less than a year

ProsThe name brand, they are pro customer, fees are resonable

ConsIt is way to diffucult to make it with very little leads provided with not enough income. Zero base salary and you have to pay them back every month.

Advice to Senior ManagementUse the servicing of the mortgage portfolio to market and distribute the leads evenly

One of the BEST Companies I have ever worked for!!

UW II (Former Employee)
Portland, OR

I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

ProsGood Benefits. Flexible. Provides training. Take care of their displaced workers.

ConsNot addressing what needs to be addressed once the info is out on the floor.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep what should be confidential, just that. Too many rumors get out and tend to hit the morale of the Employees.

Demanding, but really value their employees

Phone Banker (Former Employee)
Salem, OR

I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for less than a year

ProsThere are many opportunities for growth within the company and supervisors are very career and skill development oriented. The benefits better and more affordable than to be expected. There are many ways to get involved in the company and give back to the community.

ConsIn the consumer area, there are very demanding sales goals that are often emphasized more than customer service, which seems contrary to company values. You have to be in your current position for quite a while before you can move within (6 months within departments, 1 year out of department) the company, so it had better be a good fit.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake HR more personable, not one size fits all. You're losing out on some very hard working, personable team members if they are unhappy in their current position and have very limited mobility options.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great place to grow your career. The opportunity for advancement and bonuses is possible and spelled out.

Personal Banker (Current Employee)
Portland, OR

I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 3 years

ProsIf you are very successful at exceeding your quarterly quotas the opportunity for bonuses is plentiful. It is pretty clear what you need to do to get promoted.

Conshigh sales goals detract from the customer service.

Advice to Senior Managementto decrease sales goals so tellers and bankers can have an even better customer service experience. better customer service retains customers. make college checking accounts free for college students to gain their business.

Relocated for Hire

Underwriter III (Former Employee)
Portland, OR

I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

ProsBenefits package included vision and dental

ConsTreated as a number and dispensable. Constantly tested on everything you do and threatened with termination. No interaction among employees encouraged yet they claim we are "team members".

Too Much For Too Little

Collector I (Current Employee)
Beaverton, OR

I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for less than a year

ProsGood company if you are concerned about working for someone with a long history. Most upper management is very nice and treats you well.

ConsRidiculous stats to meet, the job has so many land mines for you to trip over each month to divert you from bonuses...which you NEED to make the low pay bearable. You're told you will get specific shifts then in training they will tell you that you were hired and you need to work what they need.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the way you treat your employees...just converse more with the people ABOVE you to tell them how the people WORKING in the field actually feel.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

OK for a short period of time

Teller (Former Employee)
Tigard, OR

I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for less than a year

ProsYou can always get time off, they have a set hours no matter how slow business is. Pay is decent but only a dollar more than min wage. There is a little bit of bonus you can get every quarter.

ConsManagers get moved around so much. People are always doing whats better for their sales rather then the customer. Its hard to watch co workers force others into something that will not help them financially.

Advice to Senior ManagementStay in one spot. And be nice to your tellers.
